The Kennel Club Assured Breeders

The Kennel Club is the only organisation accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to certify dog breeders under our Assured Breeders scheme. This means we are recognised as an impartial and competent inspector by the government's sole national accreditation body.
